    Ok, i got a Bonneville SSEI.

    It's fast with the supercharger but i want to make it faster.

    I don't know much about this sort of thing so any advice would be appreciated.

    I want to spend under $2000 and get the most bang for the buck, any help?

    guess you GM people dont have hardcore enthusiast then.. :mamoru:
    a powerpipe is like a cold air induction pipe but it will actually increase boost/ > air compression levels because of the design for air flow on NA or boosted applications

    with the cold air intakes we have... we dont use "pipes" unless it was a fenderwell... none the less, the things that we do are big air duct rubber hoses with a smooth inside. With the way that out intakes are designed, it is about 6 inches from the CAI box to the throttle body, so we use bendable rubber "piping"

    Gotta love how cheap the 3800 supercharged is to modify. :cool:

    To the original poster, I'd just start with a smaller pulley (3.4"), intake and exhaust. That'll really wake the car up and shave about 0.75 of a second off of your quarter mile time, no problem.

    If that's not enough, you can always do more. Just remember, though, that on these cars, the trannys tend to be a weak point, and you may want to remember that. For just a daily driver, I think that the combo outlined above is perfect. Plus, it'll be less than $500. Hell, you can get the pulley for $60 alone, and a cone filter home made CAI is about $50. The exhaust is the expensive part, but ported manifolds you can get from www.hulkspeed.com, coated, for less than $200.

    Hell yeah, man. That's the next thing I've got to do on my GP. That, and go back to a 3.4" from a 3.3". Summer here in So. Cal. is a bitch for KR. 91 Octane crap gas + 90 degrees out is not so good for a FI car. :wtc:

    You fuckin retard, last time I talked to you you admitted you wasted over $10k on parts for a $9k car. You still can barely beat a stock mustang gt.
